Teen Spirit

Interscope Records released Teen Spirit Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, a 14- track collection that provides a window into the world of Violet – played by Elle Fanning – in the upcoming film, which opens in select theaters April 12. Produced by Fred Berger (La La Land), Teen Spirit marks the directorial debut of Max Minghella. Download / stream Teen Spirit Original Motion Picture Soundtrack HERE.

Billboard hailed Teen Spirit as a “pop purist’s dream” and, in this feature, examined Fanning’s preparation for the role of Violet, a shy teenager who dreams of escaping her small town and pursuing her passion to sing. Violet is aided by an unlikely mentor as she participates in a local singing competition that will test her integrity, talent and ambition.

Watch Fanning perform “Wildflowers,” a never-before-released original song written by Carly Rae Jepsen and Jack Antonoff, in the official video filmed at New York’s Electric Lady Studios. NYLONpraised the track as “a total bop…a synthy pop breakup tune.”

The soundtrack also features Fanning’s interpretations of songs by Ellie Goulding, Annie Lennox, Tegan and Sara and Sigrid, leading PEOPLE to observe, “Elle Fanning is channeling all of your favorite pop stars.” Rolling Stone praised her “powerful rendition” of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own,” which can be heard in this clip. The original versions of No Doubt’s “Just A Girl,” Grimes’ “Genesis” and Major Lazer’s “Lean On” feat. DJ Snake & MØ are also included on the album. See below for tracklisting.

Annie Lennox: Global International Women’s Day Initiative

As the women’s rights movement pushes forward, internationally acclaimed singer, songwriter, performer and Human Rights activist Annie Lennox and the NGO she founded, The Circle, have partnered with Apple Music for a Global International Women’s Day initiative launched today.

Together with Sammy Andrews and her team at Deviate Digital, they have created a short film in support of Global Feminism, an umbrella term inclusive of all approaches to women’s equality.

To help her, Annie has drawn support from some of the biggest names in music, film and beyond, including Ed SheeranDua Lipa, Richard E Grant, Emeli Sande, Hozier, Farhan Akhtar,Richa Chadha, Eddie Izzard, Gwendoline Christie, Beverley Knight and Mary J Blige.

Watch / share the short film here: http://apple.co/global-feminism

While we celebrate and acknowledge the advancement in women rights over the past 100 years, we must make sure it’s inclusive for all.  The short film aims to highlight the injustices still experienced by millions of women and girls the world over – from misogyny, rape and violence to pay disparity.

Every woman and girl, no matter where they live, no matter the colour their skin, no matter what religious faith, no matter what – MUST have access to the same basic human rights. Global Feminists believe in equality of rights, with empowerment and justice made available for every woman and girl in every corner of the world.

Annie Lennox: “Disempowerment creates an appalling way of life for millions of women and girls around the world. While physical or sexual violence affects one in three women, and two thirds of the world’s 757 million adults who cannot read or write are women … these are only two on a long list of disparity and injustice. We cannot ignore the fact that feminism must have a global reach.”

“At a time when there seems to be so much polarity and division in the world, the term ‘global feminism’ offers an opportunity for people from every walk of life, colour of skin, gender or sexual orientation to understand and identify with the bigger global picture. We need to stand shoulder to shoulder in support of human rights, justice and equality for women and girls everywhere in the world, especially in countries where they are not even near the lowest rung of the ladder.”

Rachel Newman (Apple Music Global Head of Editorial): Annie Lennox is not only one of the most prolific women in music, but one of the most dedicated and passionate women’s rights advocates of our time. Her efforts to better this world are truly inspiring and her impact is undeniable. This International Women’s Day we are thrilled and honored to support this incredible artist and share her message of #globalfeminism with our global audience.”

Sioned Jones (Executive Director, The Circle):‘Global Feminism is at the heart of what we do as we strive for a more equal and fairer world for women and girls.  On this International Women’s Day having a chance to remind us all of the huge inequalities and injustices that remain for millions of women and girls across the globe is important in ensuring no one is left behind in being able to realise their basic human rights.  We thank Annie, Apple Music  and all the contributors who have given up their time and support to this film and we all stand together as Global Feminists’

To accompany the short film, all participants shared their favourite songs inspired by visionary women with Apple Music for an exclusive #GlobalFeminism playlist in honour of International Women’s Day. You can listen to the playlist here http://apple.co/GlobalFeminism
